that former cia director david petraeus will testify before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow. that information is coming to us from kelly o'donnell who spoke to a veteran senator on capitol hill and, of course, it comes as some tough questions are expected today for president obama. he's giving his first news conference since being re-elected. he will meet the press at 1:0 this afternoon and probably should be prepared to answer some tough questions about general petraeus and allen and the fbi investigation as well as libya, not to mention the fiscal cliff and we're learning more about the woman who knew both general, tampa socialite jill kelley. a senior defense official says the e-mails between the two were more than just calling one another sweetheart, they were flirtatious and unprofessional. both of them wrote letters vouching for her sister in a child custody case and she made this phone call claiming she had some sort of diplomatic status which she does not. >> i am an honorary consul-general so i have unveilability so i should -- they should not be going across my pro
at the cia in recent years when he was charge of it so i'm not surprised he turned around but that he could back out, he thought. >> not what president obama wanted to talk about at his first post-election briefing but what is the first question about? >> about general petraeus, general allen and this entire context of what is happening in the senior military leadership. what was going on with jill kelley and what, if anything, it has to do with the underlying story of libya and the cia's involvement there. i mean there's more and more information, some of it opaque, some of it becoming a little more defined that it was the cia, not the state department, that had the lead role in either securing or being a part of whatever that consulate activity was in benghazi. now, maybe there are things the president cannot disclose at an open press conference but this testimony that general petraeus will give behind closed doors may be able to shed some light on libya, cia and what may have been some of the motives of those terrorists who attacked on 9/11. we'll find out. >> yeah, the big question abou
has been totally in the dark or was totally in the dark. the director of the cia was under investigation until a week ago last wednesday is when they say he found out. even so that investigation ban months ago. >> it is simply a fact that the white house is knottednot aware situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday. the situation regarding general allen until friday. so the fbi is the place to go. >> the deputy director of the fbi shawn joyce is going to make an appearance on capitol hill to brief leaders of the house and senate intelligence committee to say why they also were not kept in the loop regarding the investigation of general petraeus. this story has taken several strange turns in the past 24-hours. we caught our first glimpse of paula broadwell and found her driver's license was found on a jogging trail in washington. the scandal that started with broadwell has ballooned to include the top u.s. commander in afghanistan general john allen accused of sending several00 e-mails to kelley that were like phone-sex over e-mail. it is time right now to hold of

, that there are no unanswered questions. the senators saying this morning the acting c.i.a. director morell told them the al-qaeda references were dropped in the c.i.a. talking points at the request of the f.b.i. because the bureau did not want to compromise an ongoing criminal investigation. but late this afternoon, c.i.a. officials called to correct the record, that it was actually them. rice met with senator joe lieberman who asked if she was coached by the add f before her talk hoe appearances. >> she said no, she was not given messaging points at all by the white house prior to her appearance on those sound morning shows. >> so the meeting today did not settle the matter. it certainly is not as far as these republicans are concerned. >> shepard: what's the response from the administration? >> in that written statement, rice who was joined by the acting c.i.a. director on the hill, said, quote, we explained the talking points provided by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in the key respect there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. al
on davidd3 petraeus's head, as soon as he issued against the wishes of the administration, a cia timeline on benghazi, do you? >> this is exactly, and i love your sarcasm, but that is exactly the problem. in the way that we do have the tools is we have a department of injustice -- if it becomes that, we have the power to define it. it is clearly being used and it is time to define the parts of it that are being unjust. we have that power. the other thing that is so good about america, when the american people rise up and say this is crazy, people are crying for help and nobody did anything. for heaven sakes, somebody answer the phone. we need to know, and this attorney general is not going to do it. the american people need to rise up and make it clear. we need an independent investigation. lou: congressman louie gohmert, it's always good to talk to you. corporate leaders asking the president to be pro-business. carl's junior president doesn't think that the president is listening. coming up next. with the spark miles card from capital one, thor gets great rewards for his small business!
and close friend simply told the truth as she was permitted to tell it, what the cia gave her to say and no more. for that he charges susan rice, in the words of the new york post, being fried. political fight fans on the tabloids relish this extreme combat what should be a good person's judgment? that's my question tonight. is susan rice now a surrogate for the president, someone to take the punishment when others above her pay grade should be answering the questions, or is she accountable for going on national television knowing she can't tell the whole truth because it's classified? let's begin with senator susan collins, republican of maine. i guess it's the toughest question in the world, senator, and that is, do you believe that susan rice, the u.n. ambassador, knowingly covered up a breach of national security? >> well, let me say this, chris, our purpose is to understand the security failure in benghazi. what the administration told the american public about it. and how we can learn lessons to keep our personnel safer in the future. so that's my interest and goal in this situ
, not from the dni. second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. and she continued to tell the world through all the talk shows, that it was a, quote, spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that's not competence in my view. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible. that is not an acceptable person, inmy view, to be secretary of state. >> president obama says it is important to find out exactly what happened there but it's outrageous for senator mccain or other republicans to go after miss rice, that it's the president who's responsible, that he should be the one if they want to point fingers or go after anyone. zoraida? >> dan lothian live in washington for us. thank you. >> okay. >>> new developments this morning in "the apprentice" sex scandal leading back to square one. we know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led to the former cia director's resignation. his name is frederick humphries ii, 47 years old and a veteran investigator. also
continue to incite violence. >> brian: what about the arab democracy? our next guest is a former cia agent with the unit. michael, another conflict between the israelis and palestinians. and the center piece is gaza. what is different now? >> what is different now, america had invested in 50 years in tyranny to make sure israel was suppressed and the america protected. when arab spring came. people including senator graham predicted just a secular democracy and it was a arab spring of secularism. people will turn in a time of turmoil to their faith or what they believed in for a thousand years. we have governments in libya where our people were killed and now in egypt that are going to support their breathern. >> brian: what is the best conclusion and best way to end. >> i am one that believes war should burn themselves out and not get involved in the middle of it. you get blamed by both side and it will start over again. i think it is a tragic mistake for us to be involved. we have no idea there. but let the thing take course. >> brian: would you go with ariol sharon's son which said the
're even more concerned, centers around the information that the cia had just after the attack about possible involvement in the benghazi attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and those three other americans. now, ambassador rice did not make reference to this information in her talk show appearances. the unclassified talking points she used were provided by the cia, were stripped of these references to al qaeda, because the information was classified and couldn't be delivered in public. now, after the meeting, ambassador rice acknowledged those talking points turned out to be incorrect. but that she stressed she and the administration never meant to mislead the american people. and what the senators are saying is, as a cabinet member, ambassador rice is privy to this conflicting information, she should have been more discerning when she went on those talk shows, and that the secretary of state should ambassador rice be nominated needs more independent, not just held to party lines. let's take a listen to what senators graham and ayotte said yesterday after those meetings. >> b
with the hollywood satire. complicated cia movie. it's a political movie and it's all true. >> bill: so you wanted to make an entertainment about a serious subject rescuing americans from a dictatorship, iran? >> i did. and the serious aspect of it was that this is really a tribute to the folks in our clandestined services and diplomats in the foreign service risking their lives over there tragically seeing examples of that very recently. folks who are, what they give up to serve us and to serve our country. >> this is a valentine from ben affleck to the intelligence community. the same people who waterboarded the same people who renditioned, liberal friends going to say to you. >> i don't worry too much about what my liberal friends are going to say. to me i made a movie that my friends who are democrats and my friends who are republicans can both watch. that's not a political movie. >> in the back of your mind you didn't say look i'm glorifying people who maybe did bad things in the name of the country to protect -- >> -- listen, i have been to the cia. these are extraordinary honorable people i
: and now the top people responsible for our defense, first, general petraeus resigning as head the c.i.a. amid scandal. there could also be big changes at the pentagon. as well at state department. whoever the president chooses, it could impact, for example, the use of armed drones taking out al qaeda overseas. and lots of other security matters. and now, a fox news contributeor and pollster joining us, and former senior advisor to senator john mccain. the use of the unmanned drones to take out terrorists who want to murder americans, on its face it should be a no-brainer but national security appears to be politicized. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east
suggesting it was sparked by a spontaneous protest accompanied by acting cia director michael morell, rice explained she was using unclassified talking points which were stripped of references to al qaeda, still classified by the intelligence community. so rice used the word extremist. >> extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: a source inside the meeting tells cnn rice admitted to gop senators she was aware of classified information suggesting al qaeda was behind the attack, and yet gop senators point out she still said this publicly. >> we have decimated al qaeda. >> reporter: cnn also was told rice tried to clarify to gop senators what she meant was al qaeda's poor leadership has been decimated but gop senators say it is proof rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: ambassador rice, what do you say to republicans who say your comments were politically motivated? rice didn't answer our questio
on intelligence, senator saxby chambliss. the committee is scheduled to hear former cia director david petraeus give his testimony on the benghazi attack later this morning. senator, what will you be looking for? >> well, general petraeus brings a little different perspective to the committee this morning than what we had yesterday. we had the leaders from the intelligence community including acting cia director mike morrell and jim clapper, the dni, and others. the difference that we're looking for today is, general petraeus, obviously, was involved in making some of the key decisions. and we want to know what his thought process was. plus, he's the only member of the leadership team that has been back to libya since september 11. he was just there several days ago. being on the ground, he has a little bit different perspective. so we're going to be talking with him about that. >> hey, saxby, joe here. good to talk to you again. >> hey, joe. >> you know, susan rice, our u.n. ambassador, has been taking a lot of heat. john mccain, lindsey graham going after her for repeating what the president
that because this guy's department told me to say that? >> brian: we know the cia's director said someone edited my talking points. it is more than just her side of the story. >> we would be well served to have one group of senators from all of the relative committees interview the witness and dod and department of state and cia should be interviewed so we can get the same story and compare notes. stove pipe approach is not the right way to go. remember there are a number of susan rice's critics say her record is not that great. look at the inauction of the united states in the regard to syria. >> gretchen: it would be interesting to look at the votes. maybe we could ask the brown room. i bet she has the votes. >> brian: don't say brain room do this. and go on line and make the request like everybody else. none of the short cuts. >> gretchen: we should say that the brain room are the intelligent people who work here in fox news and do research. >> brian: you can expedite the request. >> steve: hope they're watching our channel. >> gretchen: in the meantime yasser arafat poisoned. palestin
general petraeus when he was running the cia and his involvement with it. it's ridiculous. ambassador rice made it clear in terms of where she got the talking points from. the republicans in the senate want to attack the white house, want to attack rice. they don't want her to be secretary of state. they don't want to say a word about the intelligence community. i say rice was right to fire back. they should push back. it should be just as aggressive in terms of laying out this is where we got the information from. and even condoleezza rice on fox news said, look, in this kind of situation, you get tons of information and it is always evolving and changing. >> so, caden, is roland right or is senator mccain right? is there more there there? >> i think roland is wrong. let's look at senator graham from south carolina also. if you know his history and senator graham's history, once they dig in, they're not going to quit. what they're looking for is the truth. they've asked for a special prosecutor. eric holder and his own appointees look at this. we have a history here. look. go back to scoo
what happened in benghazi. went out and talked about a youtube video and you have the head of the cia david petraeus saying it was clearly a terrorist attack. the white house did her in more than anyone else. >> but wasn't it her job in this case to go out and relay what the intelecommunity told her. that is the intelligence she was provided. james clapper changed that al-qaida reference to extremist and david petraeus did not speak about susan rice and tell her what he thought. i don't know why that didn't happen. wasn't it her job to relay what they told her? >> i think susan rice needs to relay was she talking to the white house political shop and who supplied her with all of the talking points and you all know and i know that when you do the sunday shows, you are talking to the communications and political folks. i am sure she had an intelligence briefing but they are communication functions and who was involved in that and what was the push and talking points there? what happened in reality was night and day from what show said. >> president obama came out and defended her. if yo
will be with the acting cia director michael morrell, they're going to be answering questions, at least it's expected, answering questions about why she said what she said when she did. in other words, when she went on those sunday talk shows, how much did she know? what were the talking points? did she really know more than the talking points? did she just stick to the talking points? was there more that she could have looked into? and this, again, i think reflects some of the confusion. don't forget, you know, there are three investigations. congressional, fbi, and state. and until those are completed. >> thank you so much, jill. >> a lot of people here in the northeast looking towards the sky this morning. winter storm we hear headed our way. let's get a quick check on the weather with alexandra steele. >> good morning to you guys. quick hitter. rain and snow. we're seeing it move in this morning and will exit this afternoon. and into the early evening. you can see, of course, the white delineating where the snow is predominantly kind of the axis of this main snow is here in southeastern pennsylva
to go after the u.n. ambassador for not probing the intelligence that was given to her by the cia. after all, let's not forget that the director of the cia himself at the time as well as the director of national intelligence, the top intelligence officials of the nation both believed when she went on the talk shows, they believe it began as a protest. the intelligence community was wrong. i hardly think it's fair to suggest she had better information than the head of the cia. >> for some reason susan rice is having a hard time convincing senators of the point she made. she met with susan colins of maine considered a moderate who said she would have trouble supporting susan rice if she's nominated as secretary of state. to get her through you need five republican votes. if you don't have susan collins, who are you going to get? >> hopefully we would have susan colin ifs the president nominates the ambassador. senator collins has not said she would oppose the nomination. she said she want wants more information. i agree with the white house. there isn't likely to be a change in the fact he
his people to mass meetings they called white nights and rant about suicide if under attack by the cia or the guyanese army or other known forces. >> if you're not prepared to die for your children, you will not stand up for your children. >> for months, jones would tell parents their children might have to die. >> at some point you will sacrifice your children. you have to make that commitment. >> at one meeting jones tried to get jerry parks to promise to kill his daughter tracy if the camp were invaded. >> how old is your child? >> 11. >> at 11 unless it came to an overwhelming invasion. then we would gently put them to sleep which we have and they would never know what has hit them. we've already prepared for that are. >> and i thought, you know what? am i the only one in this cotton picking group that's got the guts to stand up and say, no, i don't want to commit suicide? >> from that moment on jerry parks said, he knew he had to get his family out. >> i knew those white nights he was having was fake at the time, but i also knew that one day one of them would not be fake. >> next,
from the cia testimony and those hearings that the intelligence was good and changed somewhere along the way. arecloser to figuring out where that communication breakdown occurred? >> reporter: there's always a fog of war, as it is. a lot of this information we have to remember is classified. so she can't talk about it, and if they were talking about it, i'd be a little more disturbed because they'd be revealing classified information. is it still hard to figure out exactly what happened? yes. it does not seem like susan rice was out there deliberating lying as some senators said. she was begin these talking points about the intelligence community and was sent out by the white house and that's what she did. she delivered the information as to sort of the best of what she understood at the time. >> well, it was not classified that this was a terrorist att k attack. that was in press reports days afterwards and before she went on national television. i got to ask, is the president wasting good capital pushing this nomination of a clearly controversy figure, regardless of which side yo
with him yesterday. you know what? i'm voting for cia. he is my guy. i want him to be person of the year because that would send "time" magazine a message stop screwing around. if barack obama doesn't win person of the year i will be surprised. yes "time" nominated mitt romney but he he has no chance. neither does hillary clinton who is somewhat responsible for the libyan mess. bill clinton is on the list. i would vote for jay-z over the president. no to bill clinton sea brilliant man. why would he be person of the year? for what. you can see we are living in a very shallow time in america. pardon the pun. truth is, we have very few dynamic leaders in this country where is abe lincoln when we need him. like 1860 america is a divided nation there is a culture war raging. we need a person to bring us together to solve complicated problems and stop all the nonsense. lincoln could have done it. republic-- strike that gist and kirsten powers the democrat and fox news analyst. who is your person of the year? >> while using "time" magazine's criteria which doesn't mean it's necessarily a person
on what the cia knew and when petraeus' resignation has raised concerns about whether any classified information was compromised during his personal affair at the center of both incidents. it's a level of institutional distrust that petraeus embodies. once considered the architect of success in our foreign wars, it's a deeper failure of power. chris, i want to ask you about this. as we were talking about the drones and both you and mark pointing out that it's more about the kill list and the policy of assassination. i heard allison say during the break. thinking about a republican with that list, is the real issue the failure of elites? >> i think in the petraeus, i think there's two things in petraeus. there's the surveillance state aspect of it. why was the fbi raiding his e-mail and what is the threshold for that? then i think the way in which the mythology that david petraeus cultivated around himself. it was a combination of performance in the battled field, i'm not the best judge of this, substantively quite good along with a savvy way of getting the press to go along with the
's explosion. still, we don't know what caused it. >>> now the latest in the former cia director david petraeus' sex scandal. cameras were waiting as the mistress, paula broadwell, returned to her north carolina home yesterday. her husband scott told reporters he had no comment. meanwhile after the testimony from david petraeus before congress, a big battle is brewing over u.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in these talking points. democratic senator dianne feinstein, chairman of the senate intelligence committee, says she will investigate why the terrorist role was not included, but she says she's sure the white house did not change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word consulate was changed to mission. that's the only change that anyone in the white house made. and i have checked th
. while detailing the growth of the surveillance state in the context of former c.i.a. director's david petraeus. i showed u.s. request to google for user information. i said the 7,969 requests they received did not come with a warrant. that is not entirely accurate. google does not break out the number of government requests it receives by type offer how many come with a warrant and how many do not. it is likely that several types of the requests that google gets, such as court for wiretap orders would come with a warrant while many others would not. i regret the error. usually, we do now we know in this portion of the show. since we just celebrated thanksgiving, which also happens to be my favorite holiday. i thought i would take a moment to observe the very important ritual of expressing gratitude. one of very favorite people on twitter said, gratitude is first step in recognizing privilege, next step is to battle oppression that prop it up for hulk's country's beginnings to now. to say i'm thankful to have a job and health insurance, should question is whether that is a blessing at
